Snyder's Dashboard: First 90 Days

LANSING, Mich. -- Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and the Republican leaders of the House and Senate say they've gotten a lot done in their first 90 days.
In listing the trio's accomplishments, the GOP governor Thursday included getting rid of the decades-old item pricing law, extending federal unemployment benefits and giving emergency financial managers more power.
But the weeks ahead may be less congenial. Republicans control the House and Senate, but Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville and House Speaker Jase Bolger acknowledged not everyone agrees with the governor's agenda.
Snyder's still working to get GOP lawmakers to pass legislation approving a new bridge across the Detroit River between Detroit and Canada, imposing income taxes on retirement income and deeply cutting public schools and universities.
He wants all three done by May 31.
